Monty the labradoodle and his owner Carlos Fresco, 57, travelled from their home in London to climb the summit of Pen y Fan in Brecon Beacons, Wales. The duo had enjoyed walking across many locations across the country including three peaks before Monty was diagnosed with leaukaemia.
Realising that the ten-year-old canine was terminally ill and his health was deteriorating, Carlos planned quickly planned the journey.
He said: “People on the hills were so kind and equally so sad at his deteriorating condition.
“In fact total strangers asked if they could share in pushing Monty on his last journey – many total strangers shed a tear as we all love dearly our little four-legged friends.
“I would like very much to thank them all for their support, encouragement and genuine concern over Monty.
“That little guy touched so many lives. Made everyone he came into contact with smile and just take a moment to reflect how sometimes life’s not that bad.”
Sadly shortly after the trip, Monty passed away at the foot of Carlos’ bed on Father’s Day June 21 after an 18-month battle.
“Our little companions are never judgemental, are always there waiting for you and offer comfort when things haven’t gone well,” said Carlos.
“I would like to thank all the wonderful people that we met in Brecon and on the hills for their true kindness and genuine sympathy.
“He was truly a special boy. God bless and goodnight little fella.”
